Eco Brass Ingot: Loads of Benefits for the Buck
Eco Brass Ingot (ASTM B30) provides manufacturers many advantages compared to both leaded and lead-free casting product alternatives. Here are a few to consider:
- Lower pouring temperature compared to standard leaded brasses
- Shortened solidification range makes it less susceptible to dispersed microporosity
- Silicon content of the alloy and the low melting temperature results in reduced dross formation and fuming
- Phosphorous addition gives Eco Brass excellent fluiditiy for replication of details
